I like that image, too. Reminds me of a movie, but i'm forgetting which one.

It's also sorta like what Otter says in "Animal House":

"Hey--he can't do that to our pledges...only WE can do that to our pledges!"

Glad that didn't offend. I know folks think that I am as sappy as can be, a regular pollyanna, but I do enjoy the majority of folks here, and find that though most all of us (well, okay, except for Ashes) can get down right cranky and uncivil in our thread battles, it generally works itself out, and many that have had extremely heated interactions often find a small bit of common ground...I know that I often learn something in the end by following both sides. Sure, there's a lot of hot air many times, but still...the "family" analogy fits pretty well.

I know that my wife and I have family members we won't talk to for another few days til they get over Tuesday!
